Usage: dvt_ls.sh start | stop | list | version | help ...
Start a language server:
start | createProject <project path> -lang <lang> [-name <name>]
[-build <name>] [-f|-F <file>] [-<name>.build <....>]
[-map <name> <path>] [-local]
[-heap_size <size>] [-stack_size <size>] [-vmargs <args>]
<project path> Path to project (must exist).
-lang <lang> Project language (vlog, vhdl).
-name <name> Friendly name for this language server.
-build <name> Name of active build configuration.
-f|-F <file> Specify a command file for the project. -f and -F are mutually exclusive.
-<name>.build <....> Create the build configuration file <project>/.dvt/<name>.build with <....> as content.
All flags up to the end of the command line, or up to the next -<name>.build flag are considered build.
configuration directives. This flag cannot be used in conjunction with -f, or -F.
-map <name> <path> Specify additional folders to be opened in the Language Server's client at connection time.
-local Language server will bind to the '127.0.0.1' address, only connections from the same machine will be accepted.
-heap_size <size> Set the Java heap size (syntax is <N>[g|G|m|M|k|K]). Default is 3072m.
-stack_size <size> Set the Java thread stack size (syntax is <N>[g|G|m|M|k|K]). Default is 4m.
-vmargs <args> Additional Java arguments.
-noexit Script will not terminate after the language server is started, terminating the script will also terminate the language server.
Stop language servers:
stop -id <id>* | -available
-id <id> Stop all servers with the specified ids.
-available Stop all unused servers.
List language servers:
list [-id <id>* | -available]
-id <id> Show info about the servers with the specified ids.
-available Show info about unused servers.
Show language server version:
If the server successfully starts it will print out the ID of the started server.
Notes about arguments
build <name> is specified, the server will use the
default build configuration (default.build file). If it doesn't exists it will be created with the
auto-config directive inside of it.
lang <lang> is specified, the server will use the values available in the
<name>.ls file and if missing it will automatically infer the languages used in your project from:
the nature directive in of an Eclipse .project file when migrating a project from DVT Eclipse
the top files specified in the
the file extensions present under the project folder
lang, heap_size, stack_size, vmargs will be saved in a
<name>.ls file when starting the server, where
<name> is the name of the build configuration used to start the server. If no values are provided for these arguments the default or inferred values will be saved.
name argument can be used to give a friendly name to the newly started Language Server. This name will be visible in the
DVT Language Servers View and can be used as an argument of the
dvt_code.sh connect ... command.
To restrict access to the Language Server use
local argument, this way the server is bound to localhost and only can be used only by UIs started on the same host.
By default servers are started as a daemon, the dvt_ls.sh command ends after the server is detached from the script. In some situation (e.g. when dispatching the job into a computer farm) it is preferable to run the server as a foreground job in which case
noexit flag must be used.
